Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the US. Inflammation, not high cholesterol may cause heart disease. Reduce your risk of heart disease by getting teeth and gums cleaned twice a year at the dentist. Twice daily brushing and flossing prevent gum disease and periodontal disease. These diseases involve inflammation and are present in most adults over the age of 30. Inflammation and heart disease are preventable. Call Dr. Nadine Hutchins 970-242-7373.
